The clutter in my life

I have a clutter pile. I always have a clutter pile, no matter how hard I try NOT to have one. I just cannot help myself. I dont want clutter, I hate clutter but it is drawn to me, like a moth to a flame. I even have a clutter pile at work.

The reason I bring this up is the clutter that was in my kitchen. Hubby is in the process of tiling the kitchen floor. He did the den and it looks awesome, I am going to get a new camera SOON so I post some of my own pics. Anyway, while I was out cheerfully and unsuspectingly running errands, he removed a countertop from the kitchen, moving my clutter pile to another pile and creating this giant clutter pile! Its unimaginable, i wish I had my camera to show pics but then I would be embarrased. And the Canadian (hubby) is a little OCD about my clutter and it drives him crazy. So I guess I need to tackle the clutter pile that has no end today. gaaaaaaaaaaah!

Hope everyone else's weekend is better than mine.........

We are up to 2000 dead in this war, when will it end?? I never understood why we are there, and I really feel that Bush had an agenda or something. Please bring our troops home, away from that hell hole!

The pic is James Kinlow, I think he is #2000. He wrote his own obit before going to Iraq, it just tears me up inside seeing these stories, 2000 stories. I am sure their families dont feel as their lives were wasted but I do, there is no sense in this. I am crying 2000 tears for all of them.

Lets talk Madonna. She is everywhere this last week. I am such a fan, a quiet kinda fan. I will never make it to a concert, I just dont care much for crowds and the price of a ticket is unreal for sure. I watched her movie on MTV and I loved it! She has really changed. I didnt care for the black and white aspect of it but the concert footages were in color and just awesome. I got a kick out her hubby, an odd couple but adorable. But my favorite Madonna thing is she has Diamond eyelashes!!!!! How fucking cool is that??? It takes a first class true star to wear those. I am in awe......I am not worthy......

I got this pic from Trent's blog, hope there are no issues with me stealing but I have share the eyelashes.

The barking foster dog is better now. She only had 2 barking spells last night. I think she misses Linda, its like she is looking for her. Who knows. Whiney Wylie is the vocal one night with her usual whines. She hates this dog food, she is so picky!

I had to wear that holter moniter for 24 hours and what a pain. I couldnt wash my hair this morning, and now its just blech. I envy those people that have thick hair and dont have to wash every day. If I dont, my hair looks like a grease pit even though my skin is not oily. I dont get it.

The big question is to go to the corn maze or not this weekend? Everyone wants to go and have fun but I just question how much it will be. Frankly it doesnt sound like fun to me. I dont want to sound like a stick in the mud but I dont get it. So I just dont know. The bike ride sounds nice, not sure how many more biker days we have left this season before it gets too cold. I should go enjoy the bike more, its seems like we have been broke since we bought it so I should ride it everyday!

gaaah I just read this post and how boring! But I am going to post it anyway

doc says my leg is better, it does feel better this morning, but yesterday I wasnt so sure! LOL. I have to get an echo today, i needed one before I went back to the cardiologist anyway.

We are doing a favor and agreed to to take one more foster...and the girl went on and on about what a "good dog" she is. That should have clued me in. This dog barked for no reason all freaking night long. And she barks during the day. What the f? Greyhounds can bark but its not their thing really. Its evidently her thing. I am tired, and hubby got less sleep than I did! Katie went to her to her new home and promptly went into heat LOL. I guess the vet that told us she was done already has egg on his face.

That dog is barking again....will it ever end??

Its been an interesting couple of days. My foot got bigger and bigger and I felt silly but went ahead and went to the doc. Well, she was talking about admitting me for IV lasix and really had me freaked out. She says the swelling is from my heart failure and by the time I saw her the swelling was up to mid calf. The other leg is swollen too just not as bad. Anyway, we decided to take 2 lasix shots yesterday and come back this morning for 2 more. This morning my foot is still pretty bad. But when I go to the doctor on call, he acts like its nothing to be concerned about and told me to go home and take my oral lasix. What the F? I was so confused, I cancelled a fun day in Gailtingburg for this?? Anyway I am home and took my oral lasix but I can tell that the shots helped me more. I lost 7 lbs of fluid when they weighed me this morning, but I feel like its coming back, I don't know though. The lasix really makes me feel like shit, like it depletes everything out of my body. It doesnt bother other people. Anyway I double my dose today and tomorrow and go back the doc (the first one, the one I liked) monday. Pretty much I am stuck at home pissing the weekend away, literally!!

On the bright side, we have a new comfy seat for the Harley now! I cant wait to try it out. I think a 2x4 would be more comfy than that stock seat. Also its such a scam...they deliberately make them awful so you will upgrade the seat. I am onto them!

I am off to pee again...and again and again...... arg!!

My daughter and her boyfriend broke up today. I could see it coming, really. She is wildly jealous, I never knew that about her. I knew she was jealous of her brother if she thought he was getting more attention that her but this kind of jealous kinda surpised me. Who knew?? Anyway, I thought I would post this pic...RIP K & W.

We have a home visit Wendsday night for Katie the foster. I'll have to post her pic too, she is so adorable! Anyway, these people have never had a dog before. They are either brave or stupid to start off with such a breed but Katie is anomoly, she is very laid back for an Iggy. I am going to miss her alot. No more fostering for a while...maybe never.

Its been a quiet weekend, one that was needed. Some friends of mine went to get tattoos today and asked me to go but I am too broke to get one. I am not 100% sure I want one anyway. I am very old school about stuff like that. I have so many friends that have greyhound tattoos and those are so awesome, but I am just not sure they are for me.

They played the repeats of My Name is Earl last night and I laughed and laughed!! I LOVE that show. Its funny and very clever. Its this years Arrested Development. Now I hope me liking it isnt the kiss the death. I think Joan of Arcadia was the best show last year and we all know what happened to it.

The bosses at work will be gone all week next year, can you say a stress-free week for me???? wooohooo.

my right foot is really swollen and it hurts when I walk on it. I dont have any idea what I did to it. I took lasix today ( I am supposed to take that every day but I dont)and see if that helps. If its the heart, then it should help. Between my heart and my bladder problems and now my foot I am defective human these days! i might just have a pity party but I have alot going for me too so I guess not.

I have discovered Celebrity gossip blogs! There are quite a few of them...I just love them. GOD I need a life huh?

I am posting this picture of Kelly Osborne, she looks so great here! I think my blog is boring looking so I will try to post more pics but I have to steal them since my digital camera needs a new card. back to how good Kelly looks. She isnt one of those rail thin bitches..she has curves and now her hair looks good too. Way to Go Kelly! Jack aint bad either these days.

Yesterday something happened to my computer and windows went kaput. Hubby reinstalled pretty quickly but I lost all my blog links and my pictures! I was able to get some of the blog links back, I am going to miss the ones I cant find again. I really have become strangely addicted to other peoples blogs.

Still have fleas...these are a mutant strain or something...maybe its a new weapon of mass destruction the government is testing on us! We have tried almost everything and nothing has helped.The dogs get some relief but its short lived. Its embarrassing too! Luckliy these are picky fleas, they are not interested in all at biting us humans. Maybe there is just so much tasty dog blood around here. yech. Now we have to check for tapes too. Hopefully when the weather gets cooler we can get this problem licked.
